Pelton Turbine Construction, Working and Design

Pelton Turbine What is a Pelton Turbine? Pelton Turbine is a Tangential flow impulse turbine in which the pressure energy of water is converted into kinetic energy to form high speed water jet and this jet strikes the wheel tangentially to make it rotate. It is also called as Pelton Wheel. Also Read: Parts and […]

Properties of Fluids

Fluid means Liquid & Gas. Fluid is a matter in which molecules are free to move. As molecules are free to move, they can translate & if molecules of fluid can translate they can have motion so they can have collision among themselves. Majority property of the fluid are because of that behavior of molecules […]

Value of Ratio of Specific Heat Of Different Gases

Ratios of specific heat for gases in constant pressure and volume processes (Cp &Cv) Internal Energy For an ideal gas the internal energy (U) is a function of temperature. The internal energy of a thermodynamic system is the energy contained within it. A change in internal energy can be expressed as du = cv dT            […]
